C-Section Rate
Here at Heywood Hospital, our obstetrical care providers are committed to minimizing interventions used during the birthing process without increasing the risk of adverse outcomes. As a result, Heywood Hospital has one the lowest cesarean section rates in the state.

The Tele-NICU is a high-tech audio-visual cart which allows the obstetrical staff to emergently contact a Neonatologist at Umass Memorial any time of the day or night. It allows the Umass Neonatologists to interact with the providers at Heywood Hospital in real time. With this technology, the Neonatologist is able to view and assess the infant which helps guide the actions of the pediatricians caring for the infant. This allows for the best care to be provided to the youngest and most vulnerable patients.
